A notorious abortion clinic chain operator has been indicted by a South Carolina grand jury on several drug-related charges, including what appears to be possession of LSD. The indictment of James Scott Pendergraft, who operates several late-term abortion clinics in Florida, stems from an October 5, 2015, traffic stop involving Pendergraft and a female acquaintance in which he was charged with possessing illegal narcotics.At the time of the arrest, Live Action News reported that Pendergraft was also found to have in his possession surgical implements that were covered in blood and human tissue from abortions he had illegally performed throughout South Carolina.James Scott Pendergraft mugshot (Image via Operation Rescue)According to records on file with the Spartanburg County Seventh Judicial Circuit Public Index, the indictment was issued in May of this year and was recently uncovered by Operation Rescue, which has been following the case closely.
